  • I've traced this to the fact that I am running temperature checks in daemon.g however I can't figure out what is causing the Panel Due to blink.
    The blinking is only on active heaters, so must be related to the section of the macro that checks active heaters.

    Here is my daemon.g

    The {1}'s that appear are not in the code. The forum adds them for some reason.

    ; 0:/sys/daemon.g
    ; runs continually in background at approximately 1Hz if not delayed internally
    
    
    ;BEGIN HEATER CHECKS
    
    ; this section of daemon.g checks for heater faults
    ; RRF doesn't currently check for faults when idle but by default will shutdownduring printing if temperature excursion is > 15 degrees.
    ; Note: temp excursion value and time  may be manually set using M570
    ; checking if temp is rising requires a variable.  I have used a dummy tool offset (Tool2)  for this and to do elapsed time since last check
    ; G4 could be used but would also delay anything else in daemon.g
    ; this way allows other checks to run more frequently if needed however the G4 delays inside the loop will affect the frequency of daemon.g
    ; will be updated when variables are available in RRF.
    while iterations < #heat.heaters ; loop through all configured heaters

    @OwenD Sorry I didn't reply earlier. Just so I get this right: the issue does not appear without your daemon.g, correct?



  • @wilriker
    That is correct
    It also doesn't appear if the tool is off, only when active or on standby.
    My code ignores tools that are off unless the temp is rising so it must be the other sections causing it but I can't figure how or why.
    There is no effect on printing except that if you try to set a temp on the Paneldue and it blinks before you finish, the value is reset to zero.
    The time between blinks is approximately 10 seconds which is likely a multiple of the three second delays where I determine if the temp is rising or falling.

    Also updated to 3.2.11 and regressed back several versions with no change.

  • @wilriker
    I'd hazard a guess it's got something to do with my using a dummy tool offset to store the variables for the elapsed time & last recorded temp.
    These are done at similar intervals (or at least a multiple of)
    Not sure why that would cause a refresh of the Paneldue temps though.
    If that turns out to be the case, I wouldn't lose too much sleep over it as it'll rectify itself when we get variables.

    @OwenD Usually PanelDueFirmware reacts only passively on status updates sent by/requested from RRF. It does not make any assumptions (with the exception for the caption of the Reprint/Resimulate button). So this means it does see that this tool's state, the heater state as well as the active/current temps are being set to be all default temporarily while current temp stays as is.

    As for why your daemon.g resets all of these values, I don't know yet.
